Sam and Alessandro each share five of the primary reasons they love the film Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer.

Sam's list (in no particular order):

  • The entire movie is about Clark trying to judge how humanity will respond to him.
  • The Kents are loving, realistic, and wise parents.
  • The music is otherworldly and exhilarating while still incorporating the perfect intervals from the original score.
  • Lois is a full partner in a full relationship with Clark.
  • The themes are well drawn, such as that hardships make you stronger.

Alessandro's list (in no particular order):

  • The fights
  • The destruction
  • The alien
  • The culture
  • The secret

In this episode, Alessandro and I give our commentary on the theatrical version of Suicide Squad (Warner Bros), written and directed by David Ayer. (Because of technical limitations of Sam's recording setup, we had to use the DVD version which is the theatrical cut. For thoughts on the extended cut, see our prior episode.) We synchronize our playback at the 9 second mark right when the R RatPac logo appears.

This episode contains Sam's quick reactions to the Extended Cut of Suicide Squad, written and directed by David Ayer. Some of the pieces of extra footage were nice additions but others were probably best left out. Overall, the movie is largely the same -- the main strengths (and flaws) are all still intact.
